2013. What a year!

It's safe to say that 2013 has been a life changing year for us! At the start of the year we decided to start trying for our first child. We didn't take the decision lightly, we made sure we were ready. Nick and I have been together for 5 years and have a very healthy relationship, we have a nice home, we both have secure jobs and can afford a child financially. 2013 just seemed like the right year for us. I decided to write all about my favourite moments of the year. 

Positive +

After just one month of TTC (trying to conceive) and on our 5 year anniversary we got out BFP! (Big fat positive) I was pregnant! I thought we would be trying for a while but it happened so fast and we couldn't of been happier. I still remember that red line appearing, bursting into tears and literally dancing around the front room! I then had to wait all day for Nick to come home from work to tell him the news!


I absolutely LOVED every second of being pregnant it was one of the best experiences of my life. Creating and nurturing your baby inside you is just indescribable and a feeling I miss on a daily basis. I am already looking forward to being pregnant again a few years down the line!

My Boy

Of course the best moment of 2013 after out BFP and my pregnancy journey has got to be meeting our baby boy.. Life changing, all consuming adoration. I remember that last big push and felt him be born into the world. Hearing his cry for the first time and having him placed on my chest. I still can't believe we created something so perfect. 

Everyday my baby amazes me. He is now 7 weeks old and has changed so much since I first set eyes on him. He is such a character already and I could literally stare at him all day long in amazement. 

Here's to 2014! 


  1. Love this! You've had an amazing year and I wish you the best for 2014 sweetie!
